This is an example of how NOT to build a cabin! It’s the worst tiny cabin that Derek Diedricksen has ever encountered and stayed at.
You can see a few shots of just how bad it is below and you can watch the entire video with Deek to learn about all of the terrible design and construction mistakes in this cabin, and how it is for sure going to collapse into the ground because of the way water is running into it. Yikes. Can you believe there are places out there like this for rent?
This is the story of Sarah’s tiny tree house cabin that she built for less than $2,000 in materials. At a first glance, you may not be able to tell very easily, but it truly is a treehouse! There are 7 living trees in and around this little cabin.
Meet Sarah McClellan (daughter of Cob/Earth/Mud builder “Uncle Mud“) as she takes us through her self-built funky, unconventional, fun, and ultra-affordable home- one built IN and around seven trees.1
You can also find Chris (aka the Capable Carpenter) over at The Capable Carpenter. Anyway, he bought this trailer for only $1,000 and spent approximately $10 on materials to turn it into a micro cabin on wheels. Pretty amazing, right? By the way, he’s in the process of building a little village of tiny homes.
Meet Dan and Emily Hutcheson Moore- who after taking a few hands-on tiny house workshops, and gaining inspiration from several tiny house festivals, decided to take the plunge and live tiny full time- in a cabin-like vargo only 50 square feet in size at its base. This self-built home on wheels certainly is small, but does contain their needs and facilities for just about any occasion- from showering, to napping, going to the bathroom, and cooking.
